The Women’s Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC) is the largest certifier of businesses owned and operated by women in the United States. WBENC is a resource for more than 700 companies and government agencies that rely on its certification as an integral part of their supplier diversity programs.
WBENC’s national standard of certification, implemented by the Women’s Business Development Center, Chicago, is a meticulous process including an in-depth review of the business and site inspection. The certification process confirms that a business is at least 51% owned, operated and controlled by a woman or women. Each year, re-application must be made, and updated documentation submitted, to maintain WBENC Certification.
